Rear-End Collision Faults
Being hit from behind means that the car that was following you was negligent in following the rules of the road.
Examples of negligence on the road include:
- Inability to maintain control of the vehicle
- Distracted driving and not paying attention to hazards
- Following the car in front at an unsafe distance
- Failing to yield to right-of-way
- Not driving at a reasonable speed based on posted speed limits and road conditions
- Failure to stop the vehicle in an appropriate time
- Driving while intoxicated
Drivers have a responsibility to follow a car at a safe distance in the case of any unexpected road hazards that may exist. If someone fails to do this and one car rear ends another one, a crucial rule of the road is broken.
